Poltalloch, Paper Etching

This detailed copper etching is inspired by the ruins of the imposing Poltalloch mansion in Argyle, Scotland. Rachel would visit the area every summer as a child, her uncle was the game keeper looking after the estate. Many hours were spent sneaking into the grounds and exploring its decaying beauty, making up stories of all the house will have seen over the years.

We think the detail in the flora and fauna and the ruined tiles that Rachel has captured in this piece are amazing. I couldn’t help myself imagining what colours the tiles on the wall might have been, and the people who would off worked and lived in such a grand house like this.

The rich torn paper edge is visible in this piece and adds a lovely quality to the finished print.

We feel Rachels work, can be displayed anywhere in a home environment but with the print be unglazed I would recommend avoiding displaying this print in a kitchen or bathroom. The perfect location would be in a bedroom or living room.
